For those who, on whatever strategy, ends up with less than ~200 or less health and after it switches to last pet and only 1-2 rounds to act but all your pets are too slow/weak to help by now:

try Frigid Frostling with SURGE. It does only 111 damage but it will always hit first.

For me it worked with Omnious Flame + Molten Corgi strategy after many fails on just a few points left.

Another alternative is Surger from firelands pets. Basically any prio move would work, but afaik those who are the only elementals with it.

Can confirm that this strategy does not work at all. Died several times. Did not succeed. Maybe I do not have the right breeds or something but Foulclaw keeps just blocking all rampage and bite attacks.

I second this. Didn't work with S/B waveling, H/H Bog, and H/P Doom Bloom.

Best tactics for those who dont have ruby droplet or core hound pup:
Corrupted Blood (1/1/2), Tainted Waveling (-/1/-), Tiny Bog Beast (-/-/2)
1 - Cataclysm (if this misses, restart)
2 - Scorched Earth
3 - Explode; bring in Tainted Waveling
4 - Acidic Goo until Tainted Waveling dies
x - Rampage
(optional: you can use Leap before Rampage)

Should really use cymre's strat.
Stout alemental 2 2 1
core hound pup 2 1 2
soul of the forge 2 1 2

RNG as always but it will work -- Stout alemental must die 3rd round -- cast barrel toss 2x then explosive brew.
core hound pup must live to burrow -- cast howl then burrow
soul cast plating - reforge - then smash to kill

This worked for me, thank you. I swapped Skunky Alemental for Stout since my Skunky was leveled up already. Just make sure you have it set for Barrel Toss and Explosive Brew, the other ability doesn't matter.

This combination is RNG dependent like some of the others, but the pets it requires are less exotic.
(I don't have a molten corgi).


Ominous Flame 2,2,2
Cinderweb Recluse 1,1,2 (Needs speed greater than 288)
Ruby Droplet 1,1,2


The RNG part comes into play mostly during the first pet.
Round 1: Forboding Curse
Round 2: Scorched Earth
Round 3: Spiritfire Bolt
Round 4: Forboding Curse
Round 5: Forboding Curse
Round 6: Forboding Curse

It is important that your Flame dies on round 6 so that Crouch will not be active on Foulclaw for the next pet. If your Flame dies before or after round 6, it is possible to recover but unlikely.


Enter Ciderweb Recluse
Round 7: Brittle Webbing
Round 8: Paralyzing Venom
Round 9: Skitter
Foulclaw will crouch on round 9, so pass until your spider dies.


Enter Ruby Droplet
You can use Drain Blood to get some HP back while crouch is still active if needed.
When there is 1 round left on Foulclaw's crouch: Dive
Finally, Acid Touch or Drain Blood if there is any health left.

As long as the final pet can mitigate a little damage (healing, buffs, speed changes) and deliver a decent final punch, you should be able to finish off Foulclaw. I was able to use this method with multiple different final pets including:
Stout Alemental
Cinder Kitten
Skunky Alemental (better than Stout)
Pandaren Water Spirit


Bring bandages cuz you'll have to deal with plenty of RNG problems if your luck is anything like mine.
Happy hunting.

Can confirm this works great. I replaced second pet with Molten Corgi(1,1,1) and it went down on second try. Just follow same strat and Molten Corgi do Bark then Superbark then go Puppies while Crouch is up.
Also Drain Blood does work through Crouch.

After much trying, I finally got it with this strategy:

Corrupted Blood 1,1,2
Ominous Flame 2,2,2,
Molten Corgi 1,1,1

1. Enter Corrupted Blood with Scorched earth
2. Cataclysm
3. Explode - Corrupted Blood dies
4. Bring in Ominous Flame - Curse, curse, curse
5. Ominous Flame dies
6. Enter Molten Corgi: Superbark, Bark- Foulclaw dies

It worked all the time!

I'm so sad- I can't seem to win this fight. I don't have cinder kitten, no stout alemental, there is NO molten corgi or core hound pup in China, and my tainted is only a 273 in speed. This is going to drive me bonkers! Out of all the pet battles on Krokuun this is the ONLY one giving me problems. I've gotten close a few times but no luck yet. Any ideas?

For those still struggling to find a working strategy which doesn't involve shop pets and/or the Core Hound Pup I found this one on Wowhead. All glory goes to "wowZhenek" who managed to find a strategy which also doesn't rely on specific breeds:

Ominous Flame 222
Molten Corgi 111
Soul of the Forge 212

OF: Curse -> Scorch -> Bolt -> Curse til Ominous Flame dies
Foulclaw's shield must have worn off at this point, otherwise restart
MC: Superbark -> Bark -> keep Barking til Foulclaw's Shield is off CD -> Puppies -> Superbark
SotF: Extra plating -> Reforge -> Sulfuras Smash Foulclaw to death

Legend, Thank you!
I actually failed, but came close 3 times with this strategy.. I wasn't getting anywhere with the others.
I finally got lucky and didn't even need SoTF
Puppies really saved the day in this strat.

i replaced Soul of the Forge with Core Hound Pup, cause SotF just didnt do any dmg.

After Molten Corgi died:
1. core Hound Pup comes in
2. Howl
3. Burrow.
Maybe Burrow works on 2. aswell, but i didnt try and didnt want to take the risk.

Ty for the first Part of the strat :P

I replaced Soul of the Forge with Cinder Kitten (1,2,1). Basically, same strat until your 3rd pet. With Cinder Kitten, use Leap any time Foulclaw is protected by Crouch, so your Cinder Kitten will have the speed advantage and take less damage from Foulclaw's main attack.

I tried every line-up listed down this page multiple times, had it down to less then 100hp a few times but up went the crouch and it defeated every pet I tried, I even bought some off the AH that I didn't have. I QUIT on this bugger until there is a better way to defeat it. *throws in towel*

Chidsuey's strat worked for me as well after failing this fight several times with other strats or not having the right pets. Thanks for the tip!

This guy has got to be the hardest pet to beat on the families basis

Stout Alemental
Core Hound Pup
Soul of the Forge
(This strategy relies on the Alemental dying on the 3rd turn and the Core Hound living long enough to burrow. May need to restart more than once.)

Alemental -
Barrel Toss
Barrel Toss
Explosive Brew
Pass - dies

Core Hound Pup
Howl
Burrow
Thrash

Worked first try. Alemental(p/p) didn't die on the 3rd, but Corehound(p/h) was able to burrow and got him to ~100hp. SotF(p/h) finished him off with Plating and Deep Burn until cower wore off.

This is the one that worked for me, although I had to run it twice - I think Foulclaw had his shield back up the first time through.

Wow, this one worked really well. I was concerned about Deep Burn being weak against Foulclaw, but it was enough. I wonder if it might be better to use Sulfuras Smash (it's weak against him too), but at least the minimum damage is more than Deep Burn. Deep Burn only does more damage if the target is burning, which he is not (right?)

Worked well until the Soul had a turn. Foul shielded against the deep burn. Game over.

This got it done for me. Important note is that teh Tiny Bog Beast should be the HS breed (289speed) for optimum results. I did it with HP but took a few more tries.

Seemed to work for me. Tainted waveling killed off after only 1 round, but tiny bog beast (h/s) worked perfectly. No stress.
